White House Employees fell victim to the Syrian electronic Army's Social Engineering attack - Their personal email accounts have been hijacked by Syrian Electronic Army.

According to nextgov report, three email accounts have been compromised.  The compromised accounts are further being used for sending phishing emails to other employees.
